S&T Daewoo K11 DAW (Dual-barrel Air-burst Weapon)

    After a slow start and a few hiccups, the Korean S&T Daewoo K11 DAW has begun to be issued to the Korean Defense Force. A total of 4,000 will be produced and they will all be fielded by 2014. They are intended to be issued two per squad. The above photo was taken at the recent Armed Forces Day Parade 2013.

    The K11 has a 5.56mm lower which is fed by standard AR-15 30 round magazines. The upper has a bolt action 20mm airburst grenade launcher fed by a six round magazine.

    The jury is still out how effective a man killer it is, but we do know that it wrecks havoc on balloons …
